End-Of-Year Count 2018: Stage (including operations)

Posted in Music, Stage by Russ L on 1 January, 2019

There were some problems with this list.

The old computer went kerplunk, and with it went some not-backed-up documents that included my lists. I’ve had to reconstruct them.

Plays And Such

I’m certain that this list is complete, but I’m not 100% sure of the order. It’s hard to work out what specific date you went to see a play on even if you Google it, since they’re rarely on for only one night at a time. This is more-or-less right, at least.

– “The Wicked Wizard Of Fizzog” by the company (The Fizzogs) @ The Crescent Theatre, Birmingham

– “The MMORPG Show” by Paul Flannery (Knightmare Live) @ The Old Joint Stock Theatre, Birmingham
